Took in a few churches in Old Goa. Basilica of Bom Jesus which houses the body of some saint whose body refuses to decay. Apparently they bring the body out for viewing every 10 years.
Also Convent and Church of St Francis of Assisi, another beautiful old church. I didn't realize before I got here how much Portuguese influence there was here.
Went to a couple of markets, the most impressive one being Ingo's Night Bazaar. It had lots of food stalls, plenty of beer and live music.
I stayed in one place long enough to get some much needed repairs made to my backpack. Most of all I just enjoyed the peaceful, much slower pace of this area and the company of good friends. I didn't feel like I was in India. Just the mid-trip break that I needed!
